Barcelona cash boost as Aston Villa, AC Milan eyeing available Rafinha

Aston Villa are eyeing Paris Saint Germain midfielder Rafinha.

The Brazil international is up for sale at Paris Saint Germain after just the one season in Paris.

Mundo Deportivo via O Jogo says Paris Saint Germain are seeking €10m to sell.

Rafinha has Aston Villa, AC Milan and Lazio all keen on his signing. Should Paris Saint Germain sell, former club Barcelona will be due a 35 per cent cut of any fee.

Midfielder Rafinha is the son of Brazil World Cup winner Mazinho and the younger brother of Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara. The 28 year-old cut ties with Barca last summer, having been on their books since a junior player. Unlike Spain international Thiago, Rafinha committed his international future to Brazil and currently boasts two caps.

With Paris Saint Germain last season, Rafinha played 34 games, producing seven assists. He has a contract at the Parc des Princes until 2023.
